2011 Year in Review - Erica's Introduction

Erica: For me, summing up the year 2011 in movies is disappointed. Sure there were the standouts I was expecting (The Muppets) and those that surprised me (The Artist) but a lot of movies I watched, I thought, this movie is alright or this movie is just awful. I had a harder time finding my top 10 standout movies of the year yet found myself having lots of titles on the worst list. The year wasn't a total washout, but it was disappointing nonetheless. To me, a category like Best Picture at the Academy Awards is a no-brainer, what I am unsure of is why a movie like Bridesmaids is getting any sort of nominations. The Academy has their work cut out for them this year, but I know what should be on their lists.

I honestly do not remember when I began a Best and Worst list but I am posting my list from last year below.

This year, I found it harder to rank the movies from 1 to 10, so as of right now, they are just written under Best and Worst, unnumbered because it is very hard for me to make a decision. I have been looking forward to The Muppets since it was announced but did I like Hugo better? Yes and No. The reason behind that answer is that I knew I was going to love The Muppets, I didn't know how I was going to feel about Hugo. I was pleasantly surprised by it, but what does that mean for its ranking? 

You will have to find out when I post my lists to see where they fall.

Hope you had a great 2011 and I know I am looking forward to the movies in 2012, especially The Dark Knight Rises.
